Almost 30 points behind Ligue 1 leaders PSG, Lyon have somehow recovered from a poor start to this season and should make it into the Champions League. Last year when top scorer Alexandre Lacazette was linked with a move away to Liverpool, he did state that he wanted to play Champions League football, well at least he will be doing that next season.
Lyon though don’t seem to be able to catch up to PSG. No French side at the moment could do that and it seems to be only a matter of time before the 24-year-old moves to a top club, probably outside France.
Lacazette seems to be linked with a move to Tottenham and the second placed team in the Premier League could well break the bank and sign the talented forward but what does the French attacker bring to the table and would he be a good signing for the side?
From one second placed team to another?
Lacazette has everything that is required from a top striker. He has great movement and an unnerving finish in him, probably second to none in France. The 24-year-old has scored 20 goals in all competitions this year from just 40 games and this has apparently been a bad season for the youngster.
The Lyon forward had earlier scored 31 goals in 40 games last season and even won the Golden Boot in France, not bad when you beat the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani.
The pairing of Harry Kane and Lacazette does seem a tasty proposition, both players can finish with aplomb and Kane can do all the running about while the French striker takes up brilliant positions to score goals.
Lacazette also is known to be able to hold the ball very well and can pass well also. This would work extremely well in tandem with Harry Kane. Both players are hardworking and that would be brilliant for Tottenham.
The French striker can also lead the line well when Harry Kane is rested or is suspended. This would ensure that Tottenham have at least two great strikers who can ensure they get the goals time and again. This has been a problem that Spurs faced this season with respect to their squad strength, especially in places such as central defence.
The English side might have brought in Kevin Wimmer who played remarkably well to ensure the London club did not have to deal with a lot of problems regarding Jan Vertonghen’s injury. If Kane got injured, Tottenham would be down to no one being able to step up and this is why they need to spend a lot and sign Lacazette, to ensure they never have to worry about goals again.
